Terms of business

Note: the following terms apply to a standard contract. For custom contracts (e.g. if the client already has a hosting account), further terms may be required and will be agreed with the client in advance.

The company

Check It Out Ltd (“Check It Out”) is a limited company registered in England and Wales No: 9466269. Check It Out Ltd, The Grange Barn, Pikes End, Pinner HA5 2EX, UK.

Site creation:

Check It Out Ltd (“Check It Out”) will provide its customer/s (“the client”) with a website (“the site”).

This site will be built on the WordPress platform, a blogging and content management system platform (“the CMS”), using a template chosen by the client from a list provided by OTPW.

OTPW will make as many changes as is reasonably necessary within the confines of the chosen template, to customise the website to reflect the customer’s chosen brand identity.

OTPW will also make recommendations, as appropriate, for the most effective ordering of information supplied by the client.

Hosting and Domain Name:

OTPW will set up a hosting account on behalf of the client with DreamHost.com. DreamHost has been chosen as a large and very reliable web hosting company located in the US, which claims 100% ‘uptime’ in service. However, OTPW cannot be held liable for any interruptions in service caused by this provider.

OTPW will use the DreamHost account to secure a domain name for the client’s site. Please note that many domain names are already in use, so in the event that the desired domain name is already taken, OTPW will work with the client to secure a domain name as close to the client’s wishes as desired. This domain name will be for the exclusive use of the client for a period of one year from commencement of work.

Emails:

OTPW will set up a maximum of twenty email accounts on behalf of the client, using the client’s chosen domain name.

Registration with Google:

OTPW will create a Google account on behalf of the site. This is for the purposes of registering the site with ‘Google Webmasters’, ‘Google Places for Business’, and for tracking the site’s performance (‘Google Analytics’).

Payment:

OTPW will commence work on the site when funds equalling 50% of the total amount agreed between OTPW and the client have cleared. The site will be made public on the Web following the final 50% of the total amount being cleared.

Payment may be made via bank transfer, cheque, PayPal direct or credit card via PayPal. Details will be supplied.

End of contract:

The client may choose to renew their contract with OTPW. However, if they do not, OTPW will provide the client with:

All administrator passwords required to service

  • the site
  • the DreamHost account
  • the domain name
  • the CMS

and will destroy any copies it holds.
